We have progressively developed Roe Highway over more than 15 years as part of Perth’s strategic freight network. This upgrade and widening works will ease congestion and encourage free-flowing traffic at a "pinch-point" close to Roe Highway and Tonkin Highway interchange. More than 52,000 vehicles, including 6,000 heavy vehicles use this section of road daily.
The project reinforces the Government’s commitment to improving safety and reducing congestion for all road users in Perth’s southern suburbs.
Work is underway and the new lanes are expected to formally open to traffic in April 2017.
The project upgrades a two kilometre section of Roe Highway from Tonkin Highway to Orrong Road. Works include:
The $41 million project is being delivered by McConnell Dowell Constructors (Aust) Pty Ltd.
